Chrysler was at the center of Mitt Romney’s last-minute Jeep ad in Ohio, which gave the impression that the company was shifting jobs from Ohio to China. 

Update: In fact, all employees of the big three auto companies have election day off due to a provision of their United Auto Workers contract, per the Washington Post.
